CH&PA Press Statement

January 30, 2020, Central Housing and Planning Authority, Georgetown- We at the Central Housing and Planning Authority, the premier organization tasked with providing cohesive, sustainable and empowered communities, that is to say; to provide safe living spaces, by means of the distribution of house lots, or housing solution would like to make an appeal to all Guyanese.

First, we would like to remind you, that while we are working assiduously to meet the demands of housing our nation’s people, this can only be done in a systematic way to ensure all are served.

In this regard, we are urging the general public to be mindful of persons who are capitalizing on this “Silly Season” to create public mischief, and spread misinformation.

In an effort to better serve you the general public, while attempting to  safeguard you from possible fraud by elements of society who are offering lands they do not own, the agency will take several steps to eliminate the careless circulation of inaccurate information in this particular season.

Any public engagements, that is to say public meetings, outreach sessions, consultations meetings or land distribution exercises will be communicated through official channels.

These will be in the form of adverts on radio stations, television stations, the agency’s official Facebook page and national newspapers.

Again we urge all Guyanese not to fall prey to misinformation and possible scenarios of fraud by persons who are not employed by the agency or authorized to act of our behalf.

Please be reminded that squatting is illegal and has the potential to impede future developments.
